What's your pc rig?

Postby Steinein » Sun 10. Aug 2014, 23:51

Hey everybody,

Back in the day when UT2004 was released most of us were probably using Windows XP and in my case I just had this standard Dell pc. (I think it was a Dell Dimension 8300 with a processor of a whopping 800 MHz :D )
Nowadays almost every pc can play UT2004 on the highest settings with no problem.
But surely I'm not the only one who likes to buy some new equipement for his pc every now and then.
So what is your pc config? And much more important for UT2004, what keyboard and mouse do you use?

Mine (very much in need of a new graphic card but no money yet :thumbdown: ):

Motherboard: ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
Processor: AMD FX-8350 Black Edition (4,0 GHz (4,3 GHz turbo) 8 core)
Processor Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 412S
Graphic card: Sapphire VAPOR-X HD 4870 2GB
Memory: 2x Crucial Ballistix BLS2CP4G3D1609DS1S00CEU (2x 4GB)
Power supply: Cooler Master VS V550S
Case: Cooler Master N300 KKN1
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
(Soundcard): Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer

Monitor: Benq RL2455HM (24 inch)
Mouse: Razer DeathAdder 2013
Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013
Headphones: Razer Kraken

Surely there are some way cooler rigs out there :lol:

Hey Steiny!

Nice to see you on the forums matey! :)

This is my current rig.

CPU : Intel i5 3570k - Overclocked upto 4.8ghz
Asus Sabertooth P67 Motherboard
32Gb of Corsair 1666Mhz DDR3 Memory - running at 1807mhz
Corsair H80 Liquid Cooler for CPU - Twin Fan
Twin 2gb Radeon 7870's in Crossfire running at core of 1250Mhz, Memory at 1300Mhz. (both Air cooled but supplied via a air tube fitted with a 120mm fan)
Boot Drive is a 250Gb Samsung SSD 8340 Evo 6Gbs
Data drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 9600 Sata 6Gbs
Keyboard is a Logitech G15 (great key feel and it lights up!)
Mouse is a Logitech MX Revolution 2 wireless.
Twin display - primary is 27" Hanns @ 1920 x 1080 and a 23" LG @ 1680 x 1050
PSU is 850Watt Quad Rail 80+ unit.
Case is a pretty standard cooler master black anodised one that I picked up unused at a car boot for £15

Multiboot OS, Ubuntu Linux (Xfce desktop), Windows 7 Ultimate x 64 and OS X Mountain Lion via a EFI hack boot.

Speed wise, it's pretty rapid - no point trying to get windows to test it, it maxes out the System speed check at 7.9 for each category, Linux really flies as does OS X (wipes the floor with almost all real Macs)

Games wise, Crysis 3 on Ultra quality will run at around 95-100Fps, Battlefield 4 is very fluid at around 100Fps in High detail (crap game though) UT is crazy , in single player 300fps+ but it's obviously limited by network speed on server games.

Heat wise, even though overclocked I've left speedstep enabled so the PC idles at 1600mhz and 27Deg C (Graphics at 33) - under full load it never gets above 55Deg C CPU and is perfectly stable under prime95 for 48hrs+

There are only 3 components that are actually new, the 27" display, the boot SSD and the power supply. The rest have been purchases from Ebay, Gumtree, car boots and a local store.. total cost is less than £500 as I got some serious bargains , motherboard and memory only cost me £110 due to the previous owner not knowing how to replace a rear USB connector, easy bit of soldering that saved a fortune! Graphics cards only cost £130 for the pair! (incredibly dirty when they arrived though)

DB
Don't bother asking - I won't answer.

I'm not ignorant, just finding being quiet stops me getting a bollocking ;-)

Wow, that is a nice pc you got there Droopy!
You're lucky with those bargains, it would've been quite an expensive rig otherwise :lol:

How is that crossfire working for you? I'm going to save up for a new graphic card soon or might crossfire 2 of them.
But I've always heard its quite difficult to make games make optimal use of them, so I might just go for a big powerful one.

The Crossfire really only comes into it's own for other software (I have to produce security related designs and crossfire rendering / calculations is a lot quicker) In normal gaming the crossfire adds about 15%-20% speed depending on the game, difficult to measure accurately because DirectX Crossfire support is not exactly great but some games have their own detection and optimisations.

Tbh I only really said yes to having the pair of GPU's because of the price and the fact it gives me redundancy should one die on me ;-)
